Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Trumbull Connecticut


Did you know? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and dripping problems as they are developed to eliminate water from basements and crawlspaces.

What is a Sump Pump?

A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is usually installed at the lowest sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is transported into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water discovers its way into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the nearby storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

A lot of brand-new houses are geared up with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are specialists at sump pump installation and repair.
